I am very grateful to Bud for alerting us to this site and that other sites like it exist.

Bud likely is correct that my online course files were posted public instead of private as I intended.

I still say the rip-off site's interface looks better than SoundCloud's interface. SoundCloud's pages are too cluttered with ads for music I'll never listen to.

Well I went there and my stuff is there also, hhhmmmm seems I’m more famous than I thought. LOL http://syloken.com/mp3/RobHelms/

Pretty weird how someone can do something like this. I wonder how they get revenue from the site. Ads?

I wonder how many people care about downloads anyway these days?

Back 10-15 years ago when MP3 players were popular it was a big deal, but these days don't most people just stream the music they want to listen to?

Hi all
Interesting topic.

But I am not to surprised anyone can rip a stream once its playing you can re record it.
As far as pictures go also no prob, in most all browsers just right click on the pic and download Image , try it on my avatar here.
No fancy software or anything required. The moment you give someone a link any one can do all this that has the link. Or the if file is public shareable.
There are plenty of ways to sound cloud and others. This forums user showcase is a goldmine of songs and art work. In this case you can rip the art work with a simple screen capture.

Mike

While this discovery is indeed disturbing, it doesn't make sense that they would be doing this without being able to make any money from the music that's available for download on their website. I suspect that they are probably using Audials One, which is a program that can be set up to automatically record five different streams of songs at a time from online radio stations as well as from Spotify and Youtube. I've owned a copy for years but have mostly used it to find and listen to various online radio stations from all over the world. It's a very powerful program that can also record streaming video. It has been consistently been voted the best program of its kind for years. Here's the link to their website:

https://audials.com/en/one/what_is_new_2019.html

Or, just search for Audials One and read some of the articles at the links from the search results.

Contacting Google is only one of the steps needed to stop this. The best thing to do is to contact the host of the website and ask them to take down the website because of copyright infringement. IOW, none of you gave them permission to post your music on their website, so what they're doing is simply illegal. Any honest web host will quickly comply with your request, unless the person doing this is also their own web host. If that's the case, informing search engines about the site's violation of copyright laws would result in their site being removed from search results. The following article is just one of many that goes into extensive detail about all the steps that can be taken to deal with such websites:

A simple DMCA has worked numerous times for me.
https://www.upcounsel.com/dmca-claim

You can do this on your own (no lawyer needed) in my experience.
https://www.ipwatchdog.com/2009/07/06/sample-dmca-take-down-letter/id=4501/
Hosting companies do not want lawsuits; they eat the profits and cost customers ..
"The DMCA says that, while an Internet Service Provider (ISP) is not liable for displaying information that infringes a copyright, the ISP needs to remove the material from their users' websites if they receive proper notice. "
In my experience they usually ask the site owner to cease, and if not met, they just take the site down. The onus is on the owner; the ISP won't edit the site, not their job or responsibility.

To find the domain owner is a simple Whois
https://www.whois.com/whois/syloken.com

To find the hosting company is a little trickier, but we know they use Cloudflare nameservers and NameCheap, Inc. for the domain registry (whois exposes that), so Namecheap has billing info, meaning reliable contact. <grin>

Pinging the website reveals the IP and finding the owner of said IP shows the Host, which is also Cloudflare.
https://whois.arin.net/rest/net/NET6-2606-4700-1/pft?s=2606%3A4700%3A30%3A%3A681b%3A9cae

Hope that helps anyone that wants to follow through on a complaint. wink
A DMCA filed with Cloudflare would start to make the site owners wiggle fairly quickly.

/We're all in this together .. Red Green
// I mean we're all in the music biz together; my music is not on the site so I can't file the complaint
/// I got to two slashies so this one is just for fun

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
